If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 20 consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I tried to think of new ways to use this special. Here is what I came up with…

For my fall card I to cut down the squares to make it look like a shaker. I used the leaves from the Give Thanks stamp set. I used the binder clip cut to stamp the sentiment. The letters and binder clip stamp are from the Give Thanks stamp set. I stamped the letters using Versamark and then used Copper Embossing powder. I used Paprika and Hawthorn for the base. I added a bit of the Sangria Ribbon. The outdoor sky effect was accomplished by sponging Carolina and Pebble inks onto Daisy White.

I wanted to create another window type scene and use our new Create with Creativity Cricut Collection. I used the folded trees and the tis the season cuts. I copied an idea from Miss. Carrie’s Creations, she used the cut as a stencil. I did the same and sponged Bluebird and Carolina inks on Daisy White Cardstock. I then used the Stitched Rectangle Thin cut to cut out the sponged image. I added a bit of gold with the Stickles on the stars and in the circles on the trees. I also added a bit of Gold Embellishing Thread to the clip.

Your next stop is along this hop is WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
